Brian Williams' Katrina Tales Under Scrutiny After Helicopter Lie

NBC anchor Brian Williams apologized on Wednesday for falsely claiming his helicopter was downed by an RPG during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and now many are actively fact-checking his other extraordinary claims from over the years.

On Wednesday's "Nightly News," Williams publicly apologized for his "bungled attempt" at thanking soldiers for protecting him in Iraq.
"I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago," he said. "I want to apologize."

Under heavy scrutiny less than 24 hours after Williams' admission are his tales from Hurricane Katrina.

In one story, he claims he saw a body float by his hotel room window in New Orleans. In another, he claims his five-star hotel was overrun with gangs while he was sick with floodwater dysentery, and was rescued from a stairwell by a police officer.
